Culturally Responive Teaching and the Brain

by Zaretta Hammond   Published: 2014

 

To close the achievement gap, diverse classrooms need a proven framework for optimizing student engagement. Culturally responsive instruction has shown promise, but many teachers have struggled with its implemention - until now. 

In this book, Zaretta Hammond draws on cultting-edge neuroscience research to offer an innovative approach for designing and implementing brain-compatible culturally responsive instruction. The book includes:

-Information on how one's culture programs the brain to process data and affects learning relationships.

-Ten "key moves" to build students' learners operating systems and prepare them to become independent learners

- Prompts for action and value self-reflection

Blind Spot

by Banaji and Greenwald  Published 2013

"I know my own mind.
I am able to assess others in a fair and accurate way."

These self-perceptions are challenged by leading psychologists Mahzarin R. Banaji and Anthony G. Greenwald as they explore the hidden biases we all carry from a lifetime of exposure to cultural attitudes about age, gender, race, ethnicity, religion, social class, sexuality, disability status, and nationality.

“Blindspot” is the authors’ metaphor for the portion of the mind that houses hidden biases. Writing with simplicity and verve, Banaji and Greenwald question the extent to which our perceptions of social groups―without our awareness or conscious control―shape our likes and dislikes and our judgments about people’s character, abilities, and potential.

In Blindspot, the authors reveal hidden biases based on their experience with the Implicit Association Test, a method that has revolutionized the way scientists learn about the human mind and that gives us a glimpse into what lies within the metaphoric blindspot.

Director's Corner

Support from the Equity, Justice, and Inclusion (EJI) department aims to empower educators as educational leaders and establish equity for all students. The Equity, Justice, and Inclusion department and teams are partners and collaborators in school improvement. The EJI department and team members use standards and data, supporting schools forward in a growth mindset by way of advocacy, social justice, and systemic change. As we work together towards eliminating barriers to student success, we assure that every student has the opportunity for access, attainment, and achievement.

WSD Demographics

Wordology

Multiracial

Biracial identity development includes self-identification. A multiracial or biracialperson is someone whose parents or ancestors are from different ethnic backgrounds. While multiracial identity development refers to the process of identity development of individuals who self-identify with multiple racial groups.

Hispanic, Latino, LatinX

Hispanic- those who trace their ancestry to Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, and the Spanish-speaking countries of Central and South America.

Hispanic or Latino? While the two terms are sometimes used interchangeably, "Hispanic" is a narrower term that only refers to persons of Spanish-speaking origin or ancestry, while "Latino" is more frequently used to refer generally to anyone of Latin American origin or ancestry, including Brazilians.

Latin X- Pronounced “La-teen-ex,” Latinx is a gender-neutral term for people of Latin American heritage. By dropping the traditional –o or –a ending at the end of the root word ‘Latin,’ Latinx encompasses those who identify outside of the gender binary, such as transgender people or those who are gender-fluid.

Race

Race- the socially constructed meaning attached to a variety of physical attributes including but not limited to skin and eye color, hair texture, and bone structure of people in the US and elsewhere.

LGBTQIA

LGBTQIA. Initialism of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning, intersex, and allies. Initialism of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning, intersex, and asexual.
